Anyone have fuel issues at MB ?
I was wondering how many people got "bad" fuel in their boats besides Duke, Addicted, and SMW ?
A few of the guys had some running issues over the weekend. Duke's boat ran so bad on Saturday morning that it wouldn't even get up on plane, and he missed the radar runs. Fouled plugs, clogged filters, engine ticking noises, black looking matter in the tank and filters.
Maybe there was some bad gas at one of the stations ? Maybe the heat melted rubber parts in their tanks ? Who knows for sure.
Maybe it was an isolated incident. I would suggest everyone check the filters and tanks for debris, before you have a serious engine problem .
And if you did have similar problems, lets hear about it so we can track down where the problem originated from. If you dont want to post up thats fine, just send me a PM or e:mail.

SMW found a pepsi cap in his tank. I looked , but there is like 3/4 of a tank and the premix is so dark that I can't see the bottom. There was also water in my seperator.

I brought 30 gals from home, and bought 15 more there at Doiron's.
Luckily I didn't have any problems.

Billy, remember when I was trying to do the radar runs? I punched it, got about 100ft and it almost stalled. I turned around and it took off so off I went.
